Interior designer Peter Sinnott IV, principal of Home Works in Port Chester, is well known in our neck of the woods. But now he has another fine feather in his cap: the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club Decorator Show House. In a matter of days, he created an edgy but elegant en-suite bath for the prestigious Manhattan show, which this year, the club’s 100th anniversary, was held at the Arthur Sachs Mansion on East 66th Street.
“I wanted to create a retreat that would meld tradition with a twist,” said Sinnott. “When I saw the prototype of AKDO’s tiger maple floor tile, I knew that would be my foundation.”
His palette was whites, grays, and charcoals, which he accented with smoky blue glass access tiles. Sculpture in the shower, blue vanities, vinyl grass-cloth wall covering from Philip Jeffries, Florentine paper by Osborne & Little on the ceiling, and Colefax and Fowler fabric on the bay window all somehow magically came together in his hands.
Not surprisingly, on our visit we ran into several local residents in Sinnott’s piquant space. And their response was a resounding “Wow!”
